“I am a 65-year-old former top 10 national junior tennis player. I started golf at 30, and played some mini tour golf. In time I needed right shoulder and elbow surgery, and had years of neck adjustments to avoid fusion. Eventually, I had neck fusion and rotator cuff surgeries in 2014, with fairly good recovery and improving the ability to play golf. I then had a rough airplane landing in 2016 which took away my strength and coordination and range of motion. After 5 different PT therapists, after time for healing, after rest, after acupuncture, a neurologist told me golf is unsafe for my neck due to the fusion. I told my swing coach, Paul Trittler, I was thinking of giving up on golf due to my inability to compress the ball or control my swing. He suggested seeing Rick first. That day we went to see Rick between two appointments, and Rick told me in 2 minutes that he knew he could help me get strong again. Wow!
For some reason I trusted Rick. He seemed calm, confident, humble and professional. I had met many therapists, but he had a new approach. I traveled to Phoenix three times in the next month to give this a chance. In a few appointments, I knew I was recovering my ability to play golf.
I am sure that I am playing golf now ONLY because of Rick. Other therapists could not and still cannot help me. Rick is helping me to play competitive golf, and to do so with a return to strength and range of motion and ability to control my golf swing again.
I have shared my story with acquaintances, friends, and family. In the last 18 months, over 10 people with difficult health issues have seen Rick at my recommendation, and he has helped all of them.
I continue to be immensely grateful to Rick for his gifts of diagnosis and healing, and for helping me play competitive golf and have fun on the golf course. Also, I feel better every day too!”
